Trivia: Director Guillermo del Toro disowned the theatrical edition after repeated creative clashes with producer Bob Weinstein, who notoriously made numerous and often unreasonable demands of the production, including dictating which scenes del Toro could shoot and forcing del Toro to cut several key sequences in editing, which lead to to many of the intended themes of the film becoming lost. Years later, del Toro was granted permission to use what little deleted footage could be recovered to make a pseudo director's cut that re-instated several key scenes absent in previously released versions. Guillermo del Toro has since said that he is proud of and enjoys this second edition of the film, as it is closer to his intended vision, though it is still missing some sequences that he wasn't allowed to film.
